How it Works

It's as simple as 1,2,3

  1. Microbes are deposited onto the door handle / push plate by users.
  2. Silver ions (Ag) penetrate the cell membrane of the microbe.
  3. The ions suffocate the microbe and attack it's DNA to prevent reproduction.  

Common microbes found on door furniture include E-coli, Salmonella, Camplylobacteut and Staph Aureus.


Independant Testing

Lab Test

ISO 22196:2011 (measure of antibacterial activity on plastics and other surfaces). Coating was shown to:

  • Kill 99.99% of E-coli
  • Kill 99.99% of Staph Aureus
  • Kill 98.6% of Salmonella

Field Trials

  • 3 door locations selected (Male toilet, female toilet and busy canteen)
  • Stainless steel door handles provided benchmark
  • 2 swabs taken from each door handle trialled
  • 3 separate field trials undertaken
  • Purehold Antibacterial coating showed to be 96.4% (on average) cleaner than stainless steel
